Description

A brand new free-standing white stone art carving modern original Alabaster abstract sculpture. Recently finished medium size unique home decoration. Hand-carved and hand polished to a smooth silky finish. The stone is one solid piece with some white veins and a little brownish coloration on one side. The sculpture is an original white stone art my idea of an abstract dove. I carved it the traditional way, using only hand tools and for the polishing standard water base sandpapers up to 2000 grit, then sealed it with natural nontoxic bee wax. The base is a brown limestone with white spots and dots, cut and polished to octagon shape. Signed and dated on the base.
sculpture size including base:
13″ x 10″ x 3.5″
34 x 26 x 9 cm
weight: 8.5 kg.

Alabaster is a fine-grained type of massive gypsum rock. It measured 2 on the hardness scale of 1 – 10. Easily carvable with basic hand tools,  and polished with standard sandpapers by always doubling the grit size, a shiny and silky smooth surface could be achieved.

Alabaster is found all over the world, especially where dried-out oceans are present, however, the best quality of this type of carving stone comes from Italy and Spain. This sculpture is carved from Italian alabaster, and with its polished surface looks translucent. When displayed with light behind, the stone seems to be glowing, like it’d be light itself.

Italian alabaster is my first choice for carving, however, the Spanish variety offers shades of color in it, usually blue or orange, that might inspire other ideas for a different style of carvings. By the way, the Spanish stone seems to have a finer crystal structure, and it makes it a little smoother too.
